Red Sox $225K under luxury tax line

Written by 

The Boston Red Sox, who have been very conservative this offseason, were only $225,666 thousand dollars under this years luxury tax. The Sox letting Ellsbury go assured they would be under the line. 

The luxury tax line is set at $178 million. Boston's highest paid player is Jake Peavy, whom they acquired in a trade with the Chocago White Sox, he is set to make $16,157,271 million in 2014. 

The biggest luxury tax hit went to the New York Yankees. The Yankees and their new $236.2 million dollar payroll are set to pay a record  $29.1 million dollar luxury tax bill. 

The Dodgers also got hit with the luxury tax as their $235.4 million dollar roster is going to cost them $9.9 million dollars. The price is so cheap because as first time offenders they are only taxed 17.5 percent on any average.
